We tailor our treatment plans based on your individual needs. Not every patient presents to Dr. Ohira with the same health conditions, he will review your health history and do a chiropractic examination which may include posture, range of motion, orthopedic, spinal examination and x-rays (if necessary).
He then will present you with technique options to treat your specific condition.
